Telefónica's Spanish pay-TV platform Movistar+ is updating its user interface to integrate its IPTV channels, video-on-demand (VOD) platform and seven-day catch-up service.

Starting with IPTV subscribers in the regions of Castilla La Mancha and Castilla León, Movistar+ will gradually deploy the new platform, aiming to complete the roll-out by the end of October.

The interface intends to present a better visual and user-friendly environment, making it easier to access all types of content and displaying the entire VOD portfolio and favourite content. In addition, it integrates recommendations and different ways of discovering new content.

Through this move, Telefónica continues strengthening its IPTV position, as pay-TV has become a cornerstone in the telco's convergent offer.
